So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Fear, worry, doubt are all caustic results of a life apart from God. It’s not how He wants us to live, it is how evil wants us to live. Strong, love, joy, peace are God’s ways, the antithesis of fear, worry and doubt. Read it again – do not fear for I am with you. I am with you. God is with us, always, not just in the foxhole. Don’t be dismayed, don’t doubt, He is God and He is with us, strengthening us, ready to hold us steady with a firm grip (MSG).
It works when you work it, it doesn’t when you don’t. Go figure. With God life doesn’t get any easier, it just gets better, and it has real meaning and propose.
